  • Krakow Airport: Poland’s second most busy international airport is popular with low-cost carriers like Wizz Air and Ryanair, and is an entry point for Southern Poland.
  • Gdansk Airport: Flying to Gdansk is a great way to reach the Tricity Area and Poland’s Baltic Sea Coast.
  • By land: It is also possible to rent a car in a neighboring country and then drive to Poland. Some large cities with international airports near Poland are Berlin in Germany, Prague in the Czech Republic, and Vilnius in Lithuania

Top cities and places to visit

  • Warsaw: Almost completely rebuilt after World War II, Poland’s capital city nowadays is modern, busy, and offers countless cultural activities.
  • Krakow: Very few cities can rival Krakow in terms of history, classical architecture, and the amount of impressive churches.
  • Białowieża: The great national park in the northeast of the country is one of the remaining primeval forests in Europe and home to wildlife like European bison, wolf, moose, lynx, and hundreds of other species.
  • The Tatras: The highest part of the Carpathian Mountains, the Tatra range in Southeast Poland is both wild and serene.
  • Baltic Coast: More than 500 km long, Poland’s Baltic shore is home to distinct coastal cultures and the beautiful port city of Gdansk.

Most popular rental car

The most popular rental car in Poland is the Fiat 500. The Opel Astra and the Ford Fiesta are second and third.

Driver license requirements

  • Poland recognizes valid foreign driver’s licenses that are written in a Latin alphabet and if you’re visiting for a period of shorter than six months. If you’re staying for longer or are living in Poland permanently, you need to acquire a local driver’s license.
  • If your driver’s license is printed in a non-Latin alphabet (Cyrillic, Arabic, etc.), you’ll need an International Driving Permit (IDP).
  • Similarly, if your driver’s license doesn’t show your photograph, you might be required to have an IDP.
  • Even if you have an IDP, you must also carry your original driver’s license as you will be required to present both.
  • You must carry your driver’s license, not a copy, with you at all times. 
  • You need to have had your driver’s license for at least two years.
  • Some rental car suppliers charge a young driver fee for drivers between the ages of 22 and 25 and a senior driver fee for drivers over the age of 65.
  • There may be additional requirements depending on the car supplier and category, so make sure to check the rental conditions before booking.

Crossing Borders

Poland shares a border with Belarus, Ukraine, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Germany, Russia (the Kaliningrad exclave), and Lithuania. Poland is a member of the Schengen Area, and so are Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Germany, and Poland. If you’ll need a Schengen visa to visit Poland, you’ll also be able to visit these four other countries. 

Ukraine, Belarus, and Russia are not members of the Schengen Area. Each of these countries has its own visa policy, so you may or may not need a visa to enter them, depending on your citizenship. If you plan to visit one of these Poland’s neighbors during your rental period, we strongly advise you to get in touch with your Ministry of Foreign Affairs in advance to find out about the visa requirements.

Some car rental providers allow you to cross national borders and even drop off your car in a different country, while others don’t. If you’d like to cross a national border during your rental period, make sure to check the terms and conditions before booking a car. Learn more about cross-border rentals in our FAQ section.

Most popular types of rental car

The most popular rental car type in Poland is an Economy, but Compact and Mini are also popular choices.

Top driving routes

  • Szczecin. While Gdansk is Poland’s most popular coastal destination (and for a good reason — it’s a lovely city with lots to do), Szczecin at the other end of Poland’s Baltic coastline shouldn’t be overlooked. The capital of the historic Pomerania region, it is known for its recently restored Old Town, promenade along the Oder River, and Pomeranian Dukes Castle. Accessible road trips from Szczecin include Wolin Island, Szczecin Lagoon Nature Park, and, naturally, beaches.
  • Poznan. Often named Poland’s most liveable city, Poznan is attractive for locals and visitors alike. Located in the central-west portion of the country on the road between Warsaw and Berlin, it has long been famous for its trading prowess, a fact exemplified by its merchants and craftsmen districts, beautiful town hall, and Stary Rynek or the Old Market Square, one of the most impressive in Europe. Wielkopolski National Park, known for its beautiful lakes, is just a short drive from the city.
  • Lower Silesia. A large and distinct cultural region with a strong German vibe to it, Lower Silesia is one of the most interesting parts of Poland. Highlights include the sophisticated university city of Wroclaw, as well as many spa towns, two national parks, industrial heritage, and Jawor and Swidnica Peace churches which have both been named world heritage sites.

Depending on the experience of the driver and a nature of the stay. (In my opinion smaller cars are definitely a better choice in the city) Within the city - parking spaces are very narrow compared to US and sometimes hard to come by. Local transportation is pretty well developed. I always enjoy traveling aroung the country in my rental cars rented in Warsaw. Since Poland joined EU expressways are excellent and county roads( also in good condition) deliver unforetable memories.
